Offspring/Breeding Advice

JJ’s first British foals are due in 2017 and are eagerly anticipated. In Ireland his oldest offspring are 4 yrs old and are highly sought after with top price paid for a youngster at Goresbridge Sales in July 2016.


JJ’s temperament is second to none and he is a delight to work with. His versatility means he is an ideal cross for any type or breed of horse or pony making him an influential sire for those looking to breed top class competition ponies. He is already a popular choice, with mares booked for 2017 before the end of 2016.
